Meet Our Pastor

Pastor Brian Belting is our Lead Pastor. He is a native of Minnesota, and has lived in California, Japan and North Carolina. He graduated from Azusa Pacific University in Los Angeles and Duke Divinity School in Durham, NC. Prior to coming to Kailua UMC, he served Kilohana UMC in Niu Valley, near Hawaii-Kai. Brian and his wife, Ashley, have three children: Hudson, 9, Grayson, 7, and Stella 6.  

Not growing up in the church, Brian has a passion for inviting and connecting people to the table of Christ where we experience God’s love and the love of Christian community.

Pastor Brian Belting is the senior pastor at Kailua United Methodist Church on Oahu, Hawaii. There are green and large monstera leaves in the background of his profile photo.
